how difficult it is to grab the edge of a clip on the timeline.Heres one such posting.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/edge-of-clip-hard-to-grab
I haven’t experienced too much trouble with it. Although functionality falls far short of ideal.
My 32” 2560 x 1440 monitor. Has a pixel density of 91 pixels per inch. My 23” 1920 x 1080 monitor has a pixel density of 95 PPI.
Why should this matter?
Well, with Camtasia 8. A double arrow appears as you hover over a clip/medias edge. There’s a point at which the cursor changes from a cursor to a double arrow. While its positioned to the far left of the center point of two adjacent clips/media. Then as you move to right, it turns back into a cursor.You can record this action with a screen recorder.
That's what I did.I used Photoshop to analyze what was occurring.
With Camtasia 8 theres a “workable window” I’ll call it. It spans 7
pixels from right to left. Using my 91 and 95 PPI monitors. It’s fairly easy to
select and drag the clip of your choice. But could be easier yet.
Camtasia 9 came along and reduced the Workable Window to
just 4 pixels. That’s very little travel overall. Users wasted little time reporting difficulty's with the change.
I do most my work in Adobes Premiere Pro. They don’t use a double arrow. The icon changes to one that points to the left or right.
Premiere Pro has a workable Window of 19 pixels. That’s nearly 5 times larger of a Workable Window to work with. And almost 3 times the area Camtasia 8 utilizes.
The action is effortless in Premiere Pro. I never gave it this much thought until today. The very large area afforded to you, seems self-evident of what should be changed in Camtasia 2019. Correcting the problem and addressing 3 years of complaints at the same time.
4 pixels of travel when using a 4K 27-inch monitor. Would be a very short distance. With a pixel density of 163 PPI.
